adidas celebrates the German-Japanese friendship! The so-called Cherry Blossom Pack or Sakura Pack, includes two ZX 8000 sneakers, which are reminiscent of Japanese cherry blossoms in their style. A nice idea, but there is much more behind it! And of course we don't want to withhold this from you. But at first, all important information about the release of the adidas ZX 8000 Sakura Pack: From March 28, 2020 at midnight the two sneakers will be available. We will get a pink model, which you can buy for €118 and a light grey colorway for €130.
Now you know about the releases, but is it worth checking the release alert in our Release Calendar to make sure you don't miss the new release of the adidas ZX 8000 Sakura Pack? Definitely! And why? Let's have a closer look at that now:
A friendship for decades
This calls for a celebration! The german-japanese friendship goes back decades and has some special moments in its history. This includes the following story: When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, the Japanese gave us a very special gift. To celebrate the reunification of Germany, they gave us 9,000 cherry trees. They were planted to form an avenue that still can be admired in Berlin today.
The adidas ZX 8000 Sakura Pack is a tribute to the friendship between Germany and Japan and a reminder of this history. The two sneaker are featuring loving details and great design, inspired by the famous cherry blossoms. The names of the shoes also refer to this: Hanami stands for a cherry blossom festival in Japan and Yosakura means as much as cherry blossoms at night. There are also traditional gatherings in Japan.
So we can already see that the cherry blossom plays an important role in Japanese culture! It is also very nice that they made us Germans happy with it. That's probably what adidas thought too, and now they are also giving us a treat by decorating their legendary ZX 8000 silhouette with this special inspiration!
The adidas ZX 8000 Sakura Pack: The details
Sakura, means translated: Japanese cherry blossom. The special edition sneaker of the Cherry Blossom Pack are quite nice and, as we now know, have a really great story. The two sneakers have a mesh and suede upper and come with the famous adidas Torsion System. This technology is all about providing freedom of movement from the back to the forefoot while supporting the movement as much as possible. We not only get some nice sneakers in design here, they also have a lot to offer in terms of functionality. Nevertheless, the cherry blossom touch and the German-Japanese friendship are of course the things that aroused our interest most today:
For the perfect homage to this friendship, both sneakers come with lace looks, one with Berlin and one with Tokyo. On the inside of the tongue, there is another Sakura graphic and also the insole is decorated with it. The designers also used the print of a picnic blanket. A picnic under cherry blossoms? I would be there right away!
As already mentioned, we get a sneaker that picks up the different pink and rose tones of the cherry blossom and together with a white sole, it makes the look perfect. The grey colorway is also light and friendly and has decent odd pink details. But with a sneaker from the pack you can not only stroll along the Cherry Blossom Avenue in Berlin. The popular adidas silhouette, in combination with the special design, makes something special regardless of its great story and the colors match almost every outfit. The sporty style of the shoes, with the rather elegantly chic color scheme, constitues that special look!
